The Optimus 4X HD is loaded with an 8 megapixel camera with a single LED flash. It takes a second or two to startup before you can get clicking. Outdoor snaps are really good as the colours appear natural. Focussing is good though you might have to try a couple of times to get your best shot. Continuous shot lets you snap six photos at a time and macro shots are nice but we still preferred the One X’s macro and burst mode effects. Second place isn’t bad though.
Video recording at 1080p @30fps is possible and there is ample image stabilization while recording. The video also has live effects that provide silly faces duch as big mouth, big eyes and backgrounds to your shots. That effect changes the video recording to VGA though. The front camera works well for self-portraits and video calling. As can be seen from the images above, for casual snaps and photography, the 4X HD’s camera will more than suffice.
2150 mAh battery
Is the 2150 mAh battery enough for the Optimus 4X HD’s quad core processor? Well, if you hoped that it would last more than a day, you’re going to be disappointed. The battery is still underpowered to actually give you worry –free usage during the day. In our video loop test, we managed 9 hours, which is still higher than what the One X managed. We’d recommend you to carry a charger around (or an extra battery) if you have moderate to heavy usage.
Worth a buy?
Verdict and Price in India
The Optimus 4X HD is priced at Rs. 34,990 (MOP). It’s a tiny bit cheaper than the S III and the One X, but when you’re considering such a price tag for a phone, the price difference between the three is a paltry amount. On paper, the Galaxy S III performs faster in benchmarks but has a questionable design and build and the bland TouchWiz UI. The One X doesn’t have a removable battery or a removable microSD card slot but has an overall better look. If you’ve got no brand preferences, this Optimus won’t disappoint you one bit. It performs par excellence in all sections (minus the battery – where all the quad cores falter) and it’s the phone that shoots LG back onto the radar. If you're shopping in this price range, and you're looking for a powerful smartphone, go ahead and pick the Optimus 4X HD.
